  1. Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski dead at 21

    The title of the article and them mentioning his stats just rub me the wrong way.
  2. Hey they finally gave the University a ranking. 231st. Hey at least its something as we were listed us unranked for years. I guess our endowment is getting large enough for them to bother. EDIT: I take that back. All they could be bothered to do was rank us as 231-300.
  3. Decommitments from The Woodlands

    Agreed, I believe we are on the same side of the fence on this one. Ivy coaches can only offer players in the hopes that they can be admitted but that is far from a forgone conclusion. The offer helps the players chances of being accepted but for most their chances are still slim. Also while they do not offer athletic scholarships they almost always find scholarship money for an incoming student. I believe I read that the typical Ivy League student only pays about 1/3 of the stated tuition.
  4. Decommitments from The Woodlands

    It has been explained to me before that you have to take Ivy League and Academy offers with a grain of salt. They are legitimate offers but do not mean the kid has been accepted to those schools which is the bigger hurdle. From the players stand point it pads their offer list and let’s other schools know you are not an academic risk.
  5. I think we have all learned to be skeptical of 4 star players going to a G5 school. So we shall see.

    Thank you.
  7. DRC: UNT football notes -- Army series note

    we have a home and away scheduled with Houston. I forget the dates.
  8. Top 25 Consideration - 4 teams UNT faced

    We have good coaching. The focus must be turned on recruiting top players to UNT. We lost to FAU and Troy because they had bigger and faster players. It was painfully obvious when they lined up. Littrell now has to prove that you can recruit to NT.
  9. Now that we have a new AD, new football coach and new basketball coach. Now that we are having winning seasons and higher expectations. Now that things are looking better gauged against any metric you choose. When will your attitude improve?

That Rice game almost finished me as a UNT fan. A few of us were standing around outside the stadium after that game and a Rice fan goodheartedly came over and said “I want you to know that team of yours never quit out there. They will get better.” We all looked at each and said “dear God please tell me they quit”. It was the worst football game I was ever witness to. Rice easily could have scored a 100 on us. Unlike the Portland game we knew we had Dodge for at least a couple more years and things were not going to get better with the promise of a new hire.
  11. APOGEE used in a sermon

    This subject is not what I thought it would be
  12. Frisco Bowl

    normally an interim coach would handle the bowl game.
  13. Reality of this season?

    I really have no axe to grind on this subject. We beat teams that were even with us. We beat teams that were worse than us. Our losses came to to teams that were just flat better personnel wise. FAU and Troy looked bigger and faster and it was not even close.
  14. THANK YOU SENIORS!!

    Well done Seniors. You have been through a lot and have a lot to proud of.
  15. Student Travel Package Extended

    Not good to hear
